Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home actually excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 69.268295 percent of its residents. This is a few points lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Remarkably, this facility actually received a good score in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Not many facilities that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

With a score in this range in this area, we weren't surprised to discover this place was well below average in many staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The next area we rated is nursing. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in this category.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
